With explanations of past, present, and future, the Three Card Reading can help you choose the best action to take in your situation, and give you a glimpse of what is to come.
Tarot cards are one of many forms of divination. They are commonly used to measure potential outcomes and evaluate influences surrounding a person, an event, or both. The technical term for tarot reading is taromancy (divination through the use of tarot cards), which is a subsection of cartomancy (divination through cards in general).
The Fool does not realize that he laughs and dances on the edge of a cliff. Your situation holds many dangers that you have not recognized. You have failed to listen to good advice and have covered up obstacles with false optimism. You must develop a more serious attitude in order to escape from the danger that you now face. It may be too late to avoid the danger.
You have gone too far in believing in your own power. A fall, decline, or minor humiliation awaits along this path. You have lessons that you have not learned, and you have insulted or angered a higher being. You must restore equilibrium to the elements and acknowledge yourself as a beginner. Then you will be prepared for a new attempt.
The High Priestess signifies a changing situation. Like the phases of the Moon, the Priestess undergoes continual change. The change in progress works in your favor. Your opportunity will arrive soon, so allow yourself to drift with the current and you will arrive at a favorable destination. Keep your goal in mind, but do not force it to come about. Simply allow the situation to work for your benefit.
You have hesitated to make decisions and lost the opportune moment. You have wished for the best but have failed to act. The Empress shows you that you must seize the day if you want to succeed in life. She sits on the throne but can lose her place through inaction. Better to act than to lose the moment.
The Emperor right now shows that you have allowed your emotions to get out of control. You have criticized someone close to you, someone who is loyal and only wishes good things for you. You must step down from your throne and apologize in order to make things right. Only humility will make a difference as you calmly and carefully address the conflict.
The Pope card represents hidden wisdom and explanation. Your psychic abilities will blossom, allowing you to see into the future. You avoid danger by consulting your very strong insight. The outcome will be striking to those around you. You are growing in your awareness of the extra dimensions of reality, and your aura radiates bright white light as your third eye opens.
The simplest reading of the Lovers card is that new love is coming into your life. This may be an actual lover or a new career, interest, or hobby. The card is generally positive and shows that your desire will come to pass. You have wanted this for so long, and now it is really happening. You attract your desires like a magnet attracts metal.
Good health and success come your way as the Chariot brings you victory! You have the ability to overcome obstacles that have stood in your way for years. Your friends come to your aid, and your enemies flee. The wheels of fate have rolled forward, and you find yourself on top of your world. Enjoy this favorable sign, and have confidence.
The Strength card reveals that you face formidable obstacles, but you have the resources within you to overcome whatever comes your way. You have great courage radiating from your heart center, and you have many blessings in your life. As you take an inventory of the resources available to you, you will see that the situation is no cause for worry.
The Hermit Tarot card suggests that you are in a phase of introspection where you are drawing your attention and focus inward and looking for answers within. You have a strong need to understand, not just at the surface level but to really know why life is the way it is. This is a perfect time to take a step back from your day-to-day life and deeply contemplate your motivations, personal principles and values.
You will have good fortune and happiness. The card especially indicates material wealth and worldly success. Things are going your way, and you have a sense of positive momentum in your life. The outcome results equally from good luck and hard work, both in the present and in the past. Be thankful that things have gone your way, and be careful not to be too cocky.
The Justice card in its negative sense means that an imbalance has come into your life. Someone close to you will lose trust in your words because of your own practice of being less than truthful. You have strayed from the path, and you must return to good ways in order to restore your relationship, which is very important for your future evolution.
The Hanged Man indicates a spiritual, emotional, or physical trial that has purifying effects. The troubles that you have experienced lately have given you a more peaceful and compassionate view of the world. You are able to feel for others around you and see the temporary nature of all things and events. Others will look to you for guidance and comfort, and your deep inner resources will not fail.
The Death card rarely means physical death, but it often refers to a dream that fails to reach a proper fulfillment. Your hopes may be dashed, and you'll have a hard time mustering the energy to start again. Allow yourself a period of mourning. Allow death to comfort you, and eventually your inner reserves will recover. Avoid the temptation to be optimistic right now - a bit of sadness is perfectly appropriate.
The negative side of the Temperance card represents a lower desire interfering with a higher desire. You have failed to regulate your own behavior, which has led to wavering, inefficient thinking and acting. You must learn to place your highest values first, otherwise you will be working at cross purposes. Success involves some sacrifice. Anything worth having will require endurance along the way.
The negative side of the Devil card represents an evil outcome to the situation, resulting from misuse of material power. You are the victim or perpetrator of wrong due to bad influences in your life. The evil will only be made worse unless you change course by finding a new set of friends or seeking wise advice. Evil begets evil.
The Tower represents strength, courage, and ambition. It also means a warlike, aggressive attitude. You see what you want and stop at nothing to achieve it. The card should be regarded as a good sign that you will be able to prosper in your undertaking. You will prevail over your obstacles and enemies and have success in what you do.
The Star card represents good fortune and abundance coming into your life. The wishes that you made long ago are now coming into existence, and you feel like a child again. The heavens have aligned in your favor, and the Universe returns the good things that you have put out into the world. You have good karma, and good things will result from your activity.
The Moon here represents trickery, but in a playful sort of way. You have misjudged the situation, and a surprise lies in wait for you. A friend turns out to be a lover or a lover a friend. What seems like a bad event turns out to be a blessing. Hidden reversals of fortune lie in your path. You will know more in a few days.
The negative side of the Sun suggests that you get a little relief from a nagging situation but do not gain complete control. This will be temporary, and you will soon return to the same troubles. The Sun will go behind the clouds again, so use this time to strengthen yourself and prepare for the next round. You will not be able to achieve a clear victory now.
The Judgement card represents the last day, the culmination of a long process, things reaching completion and fulfillment. You have fought the good fight for many years, and your reward is not far away. All of your confusion will be made clear, and all of your wounds will be healed. You have reached the place that you have sought for a long time.
The World card represents a union with the whole, realization of your place in the Universe, a strong feeling of oneness with everything. Your problems fade with the sense that you are in touch with the entire Universe. This is a very good card for psychic power, for insight into hidden things, and for completing any sort of material or spiritual task.
